I am really looking forward to Marvel’s Inhumans coming to ABC in September. The Inhumans comic book series is one of my favorites and has been for a long time. The characters are all amazing and the story lines always have me hooked. Black Bolt and Medusa are one of my absolute favorite comic book couples. Now, I know many people out there don’t know much about The Inhumans. I put together a list of my favorite trade paperbacks that are sure to get you hooked on them – and also ready for the ABC TV Series!
Marvel Studios announced today that production has begun on “Ant-Man and The Wasp and I am beyond excited! I loved the first movie – despite being a tad bit nervous about it. As you know, I am a comic book girl, and so I prefer the Hank Pym version of Ant-Man. I was hoping to see a movie revolved more around him when it was first announced, but we ended up with a focus on Scott Lang. All that being said, I would not change a thing. Paul Rudd is PERFECT as Scott. Ant-Man is one of the funniest Marvel movies (right up there with both Guardians) and I have seen it more times than I can count.
One upcoming show that I cannot wait for is Inhumans! I have been reading these comics for years and years and years and cannot believe that I will be seeing some of my favorite characters like Black Bolt and Lockjaw on TV. Of course, I will also be watching the first two episodes in IMAX theaters – how could I not? The first trailer we saw had me excited – the second one was just released at SDCC and it has me BLOWN AWAY! September 29th cannot come soon enough!
So many amazing announcements came out of D23 Expo this past weekend. If you follow me on Twitter (@MamasGeeky) then you likely saw them all. I was tweeting and retweeting as fast as my little fingers would let me! I am not ashamed to admit that a few times I teared up just reading all the announcements (and I was over 2,500 miles away!). I may have let out a few gasps and screams as well – yes, my husband was very annoyed with me. But all that is besides the point. What I want to focus on are my favorite movie announcements that came out of D23 Expo – even though they were all amazing.
I want to preface this review by saying that I enjoyed both Toby McGuire and Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. Loved them even. As you likely know by now if you come here regularly, I am a giant Marvel Comics fan. That means that at times, I can be picky about the movies that bring my favorite characters to life. I will be honest, I went in to Spider-Man: Homecoming not knowing what to expect. But I was blown away by it. Dare I say it was my favorite Spider-Man movie to date? I do.

Visitors to the showroom will get the chance to step into Peter Parker’s shoes (and leap off a crane to swing through the air in pursuit of Spider-Man’s nemesis The Vulture) in the Spider-Man: Homecoming VR experience on PlayStation®VR.
I have been reading Marvel comic books for as long as I can remember. One of my favorites has always been the Inhumans. I tend to really like the people from other planets, hence why Guardians of the Galaxy is also another one of my favorite teams. Something about Black Bolt though, has always intrigued me. The fact that by just muttering a word, he can destroy so much, is pretty brilliant. When I first heard that Marvel was going to do something with the Inhumans, I was thrilled. Then we were told the movie was being put on the back burner. All of a sudden, an Inhumans show on ABC was being talked about and I was beyond excited. Medusa and Black Bolt are one of my favorite comic book couples and I cannot wait to see what happens with them.
As I am sure many of you know by now, I am a HUGE Marvel fanatic. I collect the comic books, I collect the toys, I collect the movies – and I even have a few Marvel related tattoos. So I was thrilled to hear today that Sony Music announced the release of SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) featuring the music of Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning composer Michael Giacchino. The soundtrack will be released on July 7 and is available for pre-order here.
You all know what a big Marvel fan I am, so of course, I am really looking forward to Marvel’s Black Panther, which hits theaters February 2018. Today Marvel released the poster and I was in awe of it instantly. Chadwick Boseman looks amazing as T’Challa sitting on the throne. He looks very heroic and very true to his character in the comics, which makes me happy. We saw a little bit of him in Captain America: Civil War, but not nearly enough.
As you probably know by now, I am a huge comic book geek – especially when it comes to Marvel Comics. I just can’t get enough. In fact, I was in my local shop today talking about adding some titles to my pull list, and my husband joked that I like anything Marvel. Well, I just called and asked my shop to add RUNAWAYS to my pull list, which starts this coming September. The 2003 series was one of my favorites, so I am really excited to see what this run brings!
TeeBlox is one of my favorite monthly subscription boxes – and I get a lot so that means something. I am a total Marvel Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe nerd, and TeeBlox appeals to that. Once a month, it arrives at my door with some great Marvel gear for me. Find out why every Marvel fan needs to subscribe.
At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, we see a cocoon. Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) essentially says she has created something incredible, and she will call him Adam. At this moment in the theater I nearly jumped out of my chair. My mind was BLOWN. I knew right away that she was referring to Adam Warlock, arguably one of the most powerful people in Marvel Comics. If you are wondering, just who is Adam, allow me to help you out. He is a big deal, and I am going to tell you why you should be excited to see him on the big screen.
If you are a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, take it from a comic book nerd like me, there are some books you just HAVE to read. If you want some great movie tie-ins and backgrounds on your favorite characters, these are the ones for you. Ideally, I would love to convince you all to go to your local comic book shop or look online and pick up every single issue that any of the Guardians appear in – but that is asking A LOT, I know. So I put together 5 of my favorite comic books (OK, a few are trade paperbacks) that any Marvel Cinematic Universe fan should pick up.
